One of the finest’s bands to emerge from Birmingham in a long time, overpass may only be on their second single to date but it sure exceeds any expectations you might have had. Titled “Otherside of Midnight” is a emotive song while still walking side by side with the band’s energetic sound.
Entering with a soft acoustic guitar, “Otherside of Midnight” roars into your life with a radiant soundscape. Fusing a glistening guitar line with an adrenaline packed drumbeat, the second single from overpass shoots for the stars and goes further beyond.
Telling the story of wanting to help someone help themselves, the track details that feeling of being powerless. With the moral of the story being, you can’t help someone if they don’t want to be helped, the relatable single speaks to millions because, let’s face it, we’ve all been there at some point in our lives.
An optimistic single that addresses hope and reassurance, ‘Otherside of Midnight’ escapes the usual indie sound you hear from young bands with a mature nature. Growing since their debut single, which was only released in November 2020, overpass may be youthful, but their independence, maturity and vision is breathtaking. It’s great to see a young band work hard towards their future.
